? the war hero is right there to the right of your screen. you recognize him. it's bob dole. one-time republican presidential candidate. and 30-year senate leader. and in a very emotional moment, democrat and republicans walked over to him to greet him. and then democratic senator john kerry, who also has two purple hearts, who also was nominated to run for president, gave his most impassioned speech of the year. >> bob dole, why is he not here? he's not here to advocate for the united nations and certainly this man is not here because he doesn't want to defend the sovereignty of the united states of america. he is here because he wants to know that other countries will come to treat the disabled the way we do. he's here because he wants to know that when a disabled american veteran or wounded warriors travel overseas, that they are treated with the same dignity and respect that they receive here at home. that's why an 89-year-old veteran one week removed from the bethesda naval hospital comes back to the senate on an early december day, because it matters. because what we do her

at president clinton bess towing the medal of freedom on world war ii veteran bob dole. that's just weeks after re-election back in 1996. why do i show you all of these? because it all brings me to a very special party of two having lunch next hour at the white house. president obama, as promised, in his victory speech 23 days ago, is hosting mitt romney, who has made no secret that he really thought that it would be the other way around. and our dan lothian is counting down the minutes, standing by at the white house, even though, dan, you are not invited to the luncheon, nor am i or anyone else at the camera, a mic or even a pen. why is it so private? >> reporter: that's right. oftentimes, the president will have meetings here at the white house, lunches or official meetings, where the president is not invited in. our cameras are not allowed in. sometimes our cameras are allowed in but no editorial presence. this one of those where no cameras allowed in, we're hopeful the white house will take a pick pur and release it to us, but at this point no plans for us to sort of get a peek inside that
